Day 2 of our Ilocos trip was dedicated for our tour to the northern part of Ilocos. But first, we dropped by La Paz Sand Dunes.

La Paz Sand Dunes
La Paz Sand Dunes is an 85 square kilometer sandy coastal desert located in Brgy. La Paz west of Laoag City. It is approximately 10-15 minutes from the city proper. This is a good place to watch the sunset because of the amazing view of the West Philippine Sea. The place has been a popular location for shooting films as well. Nora Aunor's Himala, FPJ's Panday and Temptation Island was shot on location here.

West Philippine Sea
La Paz Sand Dunes is gaining popularity especially to the adventure junkies. All because of the activities you can do like riding a 4x4 jeep in the dunes, renting an ATV and sandboarding. Our package actually includes unlimited sandboarding but mixing sun and sand may not be a good idea that day especially that we will still be traveling to the northern part of Ilocos. There's a next time anyway.

4x4 jeeps and ATV
You can rent 4x4 jeeps for Php 2,500 and that's already good for 4-5 persons. The ATV rental costs Php 2,000/hour. I suggest you come early in the morning or late in the afternoon since the sand may be too hot for your feet. And don't forget your water for hydration.
